Evolution is the mail client of the GNOME desktop environment.

A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted iCalendar attachment, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Evolution.
There is no known workaround at this time.

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/evolution-2.12.3-r2"
